The plugin has no external dependencies. It comes bundled with a minimized version of the javascript libraries.

Search and install the plugin using the Extension Manager. Refer to Plugins on how to install plugins manually.

A desktop application “Camunda Modeler” can be downloaded for free in order to create BPMN or DMN diagrams.


  • Full BPMN 2.0 support (thanks to the bpmn-js toolkit)
  • DMN support (thanks to the dmn-js toolkit)
  • Rendering the diagrams from embedded XML fully implemented
  • NEW: Printer friendly page support (via print… in the browser)
  • NEW: BPMN Editor provided to ease edits of diagrams directly within dokuwiki


Basic syntax:

<bpmnio type="bpmn">
    BPMN XML goes here....
  • The xml from the editor should be pasted between the tags
  • The type may be “bpmn” or “dmn”. If not set the default is “bpmn”

ToDo/Wish List

  • Support loading from dokuwiki media
  • Support saving edited diagrams back to dokuwiki media
  • Zoom factor setting
  • DMN Editor support


Will bpmnio work with PDF export plugins like dw2pdf?

Answer: Unfortunately, no. Bpmnio renders all diagrams on the client-side (in your browser) using Javascript. The DW2PDF Plugin creates PDFs on the server-side, where Javascript, and thus bpmnio, is unavailable. So any server-side export like that will contain the raw XML code, not the rendered diagrams.

You can however export a PDF with the rendered diagrams from your browser by “printing to PDF.” This functionality is built in on OS X and Linux (look for “file” and “PDF” options in your print dialog), and you can add third-party “PDF printer” software to Windows.
